Dottie Pepper

Letters to a Future Champion

Listen in app
"Letters to a Future Champion" is a loving tribute to the power a mentor can have on an athlete's career. Written by 17-time LPGA Tour winner, 2 time major champion and lead CBS golf reporter, Dottie Pepper traces the influence "Mr. Pulver", a retired PGA golf professional had on her skills as well as her character... both on the practice range and in the letters the two exchanged after lessons and tournaments. Mr. Pulver would carefully tap out a critique, a technique or advice on the life lessons a young Dottie would need to rise to the top, sending her nearly 100 letters by the time of his death in 1986.

Dottie compiled those letters into a binder and referred to them throughout her playing career and beyond. The letters are a blueprint for honoring the history and traditions of the game, but they are also about much more than golf. They speak to the value of mentorship, fundamental beliefs, curiosity, grit, grace, determination, dreams, disappointment, success, and the value of education.

It is a timeless work with appeal for young to old, golfer and non-golfer alike.
